+1 with vr6cj. First run today with the 2.0 and grabbed TQ! Great upgrade from 1.0 and I thought the 1.0 was IT!
Kudos TLR.

Had my first chance to run the 2.0 at an indoor track Friday and am stoked by how much better the buggy feels compared to the 1.0!
Shout out to the racers and track owners at R&L Hobby in North Tonawonda NY. If you are in the Buffalo area and looking for some competitive and fun racing with a great group of guys they race Friday evenings.

It seems most are going mid motor with this new kit on indoor medium to high traction conditions if running a barcode type tire with additive?

Just trying on decide which way to start
Are local track is med yo high traction and most of us run barcodes or suburbs with additive

Thanks

I used 1/4" shrink tube when I built my new car. I always use this old school trick on my cvd's.

+1 I dropped another 4 seconds this week. Car is great. I am getting better at pushing it harder and harder. Best of all I am beating people that used to lap me. Car is fantastic.

Are you guys running shorty packs? I need to get a couple for this year and was wondering if I should just buy shorties for tuning or stick with normal size sticks.

Right now I have an orion WTS pack with the tuning weights but it was on sale at my shop ($70) last year and they are over 100$ now.

Running a 7.5 eats alot of pack and I don't like having to worry about charging between rounds.

Also just finished my 2.0 It was one of the easiest to build ever. Way better than my dex210 was. Hope it's easier to drive too.

Dave. It was great that you and Chris Capello were able to come race with us. The R&L crew are great and have created a fantastic place for us to race. I hope the two of you will be able to get down again this winter. Go TLR!

Ran my new 22 2.0 last night for the first time, and am very impressed. I ran Ruffy Rios' stock setup and the car was fast everywhere! I thought I was going to regret selling my associated buggy but after that first practice lap I knew I made the right choice. A motor issue caused me not to finish the race but the car itself was awesome.

Had my first race with my new 2.0 yesturday. It was a trophy race which brought the best racers in the area out of the woodwork our track had a record turnout. Not only did I qualify for the A-Main, but also managed to take second place in the A-Main. Felt great to have a buggy that was easy to drive fast without feeling out of control. I used Frank Roots starndard set-up and only had to change tires around to find an A-Main set-up. Thanks TLR for a great revised product. Now we just need an early release for the new 22-4.

It was fun racing with you again Bob! It's been a few years. Getting home at 4am was a little rough especially because I had to go to work just 4 hrs later but the racing was worth it

really it depends on who you talk to. I usually ask sontag, james williams, or bobby flack when i have a question. With that being said i took there info and changed it to the way i like it. Tires everyone runs pink bk bars with blue proline and scrubs in the front usually also with blue prolines. UPDATE: broke a ball stud off in the rear hub again today lol still going for it though
